Police and fire blotter

Posted: Friday, April 28, 2000

Juneau police, fire officials, hospital officials and state troopers reported:

Assault:

A woman, 31, requested a safety check about 11:30 a.m. Thursday from an undisclosed address. She reported that a boy, 14, had been assaulted by a man, 38. Investigation by police continues.

Disorderly conduct:

Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School reported a case of disorderly conduct about 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Police transported a boy, 12, to Miller House for disrupting class.

Vehicle accidents:

A few minutes before midnight Friday, police responded to the report of a vehicle off the pavement near the intersection of Mendenhall Loop Road and Stephen Richards Memorial Drive. They found a 1996 Dodge Neon in the ditch. A man, 21, said he was a passenger and couldn't identify the driver. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $3,000. It was privately towed from the scene.

Harassment:

A school official from Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School reported about 2 p.m. Thursday that a harassing e-mail message was received at the school. A report was taken by the police at the request of the complainant. The e-mail message was posted as an answer to the Question of the Week on the school's Web page. The question was, ``Do you feel like there is violence in your school?'' One answer made the school's administration uncomfortable because it was harassing a student by name. The school hoped police could trace the message to its source. However, police said they are still gearing up to do such tracing unaided.

Traffic stop:

Police conducted a traffic stop on Egan Drive inbound in the Lemon Creek area about 8 a.m. Thursday. They cited a woman, 24, for driving with a suspended license and for operating a vehicle at an unsafe speed. She was provided with courtesy transportation and released. Her vehicle was impounded. Alcohol was involved in the incident.

Other:

Capital City Fire and Rescue responded to an alarm at 8:49 a.m. Thursday from Juneau Recovery Hospital. However, the fire alarm was canceled before firefighters left the station.

Capital City responded to an alarm at 9:13 a.m. Thursday at Jordan Creek Mall. Workers were found to be fiddling with the alarm system and had inadvertently triggered it; there was no fire.

Capital City responded to a report about 10:15 a.m. Thursday of a ``man down in the woods'' near Auke Lake. Apparently the man (age unknown) was uninjured and simply had chosen to sleep in the shade; he had moved on before emergency personnel arrived.
